Review

A sort of love child of the Real Exotic Marigold Hotel and the Magical Mystery Tour, this packs off a bunch of older celebs to San Francisco to investigate whether there are any health benefits to using marijuana, which you can legally buy there in various forms. It’s fun (inevitably there’s a lot of giggling), but there’s a serious side to the show too.

Linda Robson, Christopher Biggins, Pam St Clement, John Fashanu and Bobby George have various painful ailments they hope medicinal marijuana may alleviate. They’re all open-minded about the experiment – apart from Fash, who’s vehemently anti-drug so struggles with the whole concept.

Despite the psychedelic bus they’re driven around in, the Summer of Love was never like this. However, watching them share a joint with some nuns is simply mind-blowing.

Summary

Birds of a Feather's Linda Robson, ex-EastEnders star Pam St Clement, actor Christopher Biggins, retired footballer John Fashanu and darts pundit Bobby George go on a road trip across America to explore the pros and cons of legalising marijuana. They examine its the use for both medical and recreational purposes in US states where it is legal and meet people who have experienced the benefits and the downsides.
